OTB Bicycle Cafe's new north location is great! It's in the old boathouse in North Park. Great decor, good food and an awesome view of the lake! In the summer this will be perfect as there is an awesome outside eating area and the back wall will open up to the outside. Downside is the bathrooms are the ones from the boathouse and are freezing. What a great venue!

This is the sister of a bar with the same name in the bar-heavy South Side of Pittsburgh. They seem to think there's no need to change anything when they come to a park in the family/adult North Hills. The setting is beautiful, located in the North Park lake boathouse overlooking the lake. They have a very nice beer list. The menu is the same bar kind of food (the actual menu is from there too! It was dog-eared and dirty 3 days after opening) which I suppose is fine but they're not going to attract any "diners" with it. It was a little chilly on the deck - every table was full - and we asked if they could turn on the heaters that were lined up on the side. We told simply no. No explanation, no nothing, just no. The wine list is abysmal, mostly simply the cheapest stuff they could find in 1/2 gallon bottles. There were one or two slightly better bottles and when a member of our party asked if they had a Pinot Grigio was offered one of these. Unfortunately it was a Pinot Noir. When I went to their facebook page to express my opinion to them directly they responded with appreciation but said "there's no need to be rude about it." I won't make that mistake again. I would give it one star if it weren't for the view.
